‘There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories’ Ursula K LeGuin
Human beings have always gathered in communities to share stories: to listen and learn about themselves. Stories have the power to heal one person – or even change the world. Every storyteller has the responsibility to wield that power ethically.

I was invited to share a story at a local “Save the Bees” festival. I couldn’t find any folklore that quite worked for me, so came up with something that would. A honey-loving bear who wakes up one day…as a bee.
My take on the Grimm Brother’s tale. This video was shot at another storytelling jamboree I took part in on a bitter-cold, snow-covered night. In other words, a typical Syracuse evening in January. The snow just added to the story.
Tyr and Fenrir
My version of a tale from the lore of the old Norse, taken at a storytelling jamboree I was honored take part in.
Speaking of honor, this is a story steeped in just that – but also in the cost of doing the right thing.
